Thanks to Glen and Kelly (and Ellen),
	I had E. bicolor in the ground, for a couple of years where 
it multiplied and bloom. One hard winter and it is gone.

	I am just a bit too far over the edge, but I was surprised at 
its hardiness and that suggested for other species.

	I always encourage gardeners to "just try it" outdoors.

	I know Kelly is significantly south of me andGlen must be 
just a bit more protected and milder too.

	Kansas City - the land of extremes.		Best		Jim W.
